• 53-year-old has won both matches in charge since replacing Claudio Ranieri
• Ranieri’s No2 tasked with ensuring club maintain Premier League status
Leicester City have named Craig Shakespeare as first-team manager for the remainder of the season, with the club’s hierarchy impressed by the team’s “positive response” since the 53-year-old took caretaker charge almost three weeks ago. Claudio Ranieri’s former No2 was put in charge in the wake of the Italian’s sacking and has convinced the club’s owners he is the right man to steer the club to safety after wins again Liverpool and Hull City.
His next match will be in the Champions League on Tuesday, when Leicester take on Sevilla in the second leg of their last-16 tie and one of the most high-profile in the club’s 133-year history.
